So the other versions are:

4.3 - 'Kit Kat'
4.1 - 'JellyBean'
4.0 - 'Ice cream Sandwich'
3.0 - 'Honeycome'
2.3 - 'Gingerbread'
2.2 - 'Froyo'
2.1 - 'Eclair'
1.6 - 'Donut'

Am I missing Any?

Just Cupcake, 1.5. Technically you also missed 1.0 and 1.1, but those did not have code names.

This is why people on the internet should stop quoiting wikipedia like it's fact. It is often inaccurate and entirely unscholarly.

I understand what you're saying, but Wikipedia is WAY better than people say and it gets old.

True it may not be perfect, but this isn't exactly a graduate level physics class at Princeton either.

Oh I know. Don't get me wrong, I've spotted inaccuracies here and there. But when it comes to subjects with as many people interested as, say, Android versions, it's almost always accurate.

No, it's unreliable, period. The point of Wikipedia is to have a jumping off point for research. The problem is that wayyyyyyyy too many people on the internet think it's the the "be all, end all" of information. This moronic notion leads to mass disinformation on a regular basis. I could care less if this is a physics class or a roulette table, Wikipedia is not guaranteed to be accurate, and by its very nature never can be. People wouldn't be bashing it if half the morons on the internet would quit misusing it.

On the whole, Wikipedia can have problems when dealing with controversial subjects because people start to troll, but on uncontroversial subjects, like Android version code names, it's generally pretty reliable. I rarely notice a mistake and when I do it because someone bought into an urban legend.

Which means this is what the version numbers would have been if Google had numbered things sensibly:

1.X - Astro
2.X - Bender
3.X - Cupcake
4.X - Donut
5.X - Eclair
6.X - Froyo
7.X - Gingerbread
8.X - Honeycomb
9.X - Ice Cream Sandwich
10.X - JellyBean
11.X - KitKat

There are literally an infinite number of numbers so it isn't as if Google had to conserve them in order not to run out. I know Google doesn't make Firefox, but I find it funny how Google labels major revisions to Android with a tweak to a minor number while Firefox updates the major number of its version anytime they release even the most insignificant update.
